Medical malpractice may have serious or fatal outcomes

Medical mistakes lead to over 250,000 deaths each year across the United States, including Maryland. And unfortunately, even if patients survive medical malpractice, they may end up suffering life-altering and debilitating conditions. Unfortunately, these conditions can last a lifetime and negatively impact a person's quality of life.

Doctor errors can lead to medical malpractice cases

Every human being is biologically unique. This is what causes one person to adversely react to a medication that may work perfectly fine for another person. This is why doctors in Maryland ask about allergies to medications. Adverse reactions to medications can be life threatening and, in some instances, can result in medical malpractice lawsuits.

Tragic birth accident can result in medical malpractice

The anticipated birth of a child is typically one of the happiest and most exciting in a woman's life in Maryland. While most women hope for a relatively easy and safe delivery, circumstances can require that a cesarean section be performed to protect the life of the mother and child. When this is the case, it increases the likelihood of a woman requiring a cesarean section on a subsequent pregnancy. This happened in a hospital in another state and resulted in a medical malpractice case.

Improper care can lead to medical malpractice

The anticipated birth of a child can be one of the most joyous times in a person's life. The hope is always that a child will be born healthy and expectant mothers trust their doctors to provide care that gives the best chance of a healthy outcome for both mother and child in Maryland. A medical malpractice case in a neighboring state alleged that doctors did not adequately perform to that expectation.

Medical malpractice settlement cannot ease the pain

The birth of a child is one of the most eagerly anticipated events in anyone's life. The hope is that the baby will be born healthy, but sadly this is not always the case in Maryland or elsewhere. A recent case of a baby born in another state resulted in a medical malpractice case that originated when a cancer treatment was reportedly improperly administered.

Preventable brain damage can lead to medical malpractice

The birth of a child is one of the most anticipated events in a person's life. The nine months leading up to the birth are full of planning, doctor visits and excitement in Maryland. The birth of a healthy child is the expected outcome. In a recent case in another state, a child was born with severe brain damage that may have been preventable. A medical malpractice suit was recently settled.

Military personnel now have path to claim medical malpractice

Serving in the military is definitely a career choice that comes with some risks. And it is reasonable that a soldier would not be able to file a claim for an injury received on the battlefield. A new law that went into effect on Jan. 1, 2020 in Maryland and in the rest of the country does allow for filing claims against military doctors for negligence or medical malpractice.

Members of the military have redress for medical malpractice

A new year has arrived and with it are new laws that went into effect at midnight on January 1, 2020. One such law, the National Defense Authorization Act, allows members of the military in Maryland, and around the country, to file limited medical malpractice claims for death or medical injury that may have been caused by military medical staffs in military hospitals. The legislation does not allow for claims for injuries suffered while in a war zone.

Anesthesia failures can result in medical malpractice

People enter hospitals every day for surgical procedures in Maryland. Some of these procedures are performed because of an emergency situation, and some procedures are elective. One feature surgeries in general typically have in common is the need for some form of anesthesia. Successfully administered anesthesia is critical to the successful outcome of an operation, and an error in administering anesthesia can cause permanent damage or death, and result in a medical malpractice lawsuit.

Medical malpractice claims may become possible for the military

It is no secret that a person serving in the military risks being injured in the line of duty. People enlist in the military in Maryland knowing of the risk, and by signing they acknowledge that they cannot hold the military liable for injuries suffered during their service. This absolves the military from being cited for medical malpractice. This has been the case since the Supreme Court ruled in 1950 that members of the military could not sue for injuries that were perceived to be a result of medical malpractice on the part of the military. This could change if pending legislation known as the 2020 National Defense Authorization Act becomes law.
